The Womxn Project is a statewide organization dedicated to building a strong movement that harnesses the power of art, activism and advocacy. We believe that together we can dismantle systems of oppression and uplift the voices of people in our communities throughout Rhode Island in order to shift power and shape the policies that impact our lives and the lives of our neighbors.
We are so proud that TOGETHER we passed a law to protect the right to abortion. No matter what happens at the federal level, we want to make sure that in our state people can manage their own health, make their own decisions and control their own futures! More details on the bill’s passage.
Get rid of bans on health coverage for abortion for people who use Medicaid and state employees in Rhode Island.
The Womxn Project (TWP) is proud to lead a statewide campaign to close the gaps in access to abortion by ensuring that regardless of how much money someone makes or the type of insurance they have that they can afford to get an abortion when they need one.
STANDING IN SOLIDARITY
- Protecting the rights of parents with disabilities.
We believe we should all be able to build our families as we see fit and also have the ability to parent with dignity. TWP wants to ensure that our network provides support to important legislation being led by our partners. We are working in coalition to advance legislation to make sure that the disability of a parent is not used to try to deny or restrict their ability to raise their child in matters involving a child’s welfare, foster care, family law, guardianship and adoption. We should be doing more to provide services that help all parents to be able to care for their children.
- Ensuring Rhode Island law recognizes and protects all families, no matter how they are formed.
To make sure Rhode Island families all have the security they need, we are also collaborating on a bill to recognize the diversity of families in Rhode Island and ensure that all children can have their legal parentage established regardless of how their family was created. Our state has no statutes clarifying parentage for children born through assisted reproduction or surrogacy, and that is leaving children vulnerable.
